Check distributor and fuel, when car dies check for what is missing when it won't start back up. It can be only gas or spark and trust me one is missing. Good Luck

These are the steps to replace a fuel filter.
Get the new filter from a store. Get rubber gloves and a plastic bag. Get plyers, phillip and regular screw drivers, and hole plugs.
Turn off engine. (Put out all cigarettes/cigars etc)

1) Loosen the gas cap to release pressure.
2) Put on gloves. You will get gas on your hands.
3) Loose the clamp on the top of the filter.
4) Work off hose on top of filter. Use plyers twisting back-and-forth and pulling up or pry up using regular screw driver or pry up using long-nose plyer under the rubber pipe edge. This will be harder than it looks. keep filter upright.
5) Plug the hole in the top of the filter. (It's filled with gas)
6) Loosen clamp on the bottom of the filter.
7) Cover filter with plastic bag.
8) Turn the filter down
9) Work off the hose on the bottom of filter.

To replace the filter reverse the above steps in reverse.
Plug the hole in the bottom of filter and dispose of the filter as per regulation.

If you engine is a 2.4 liter it's on the passenger side center of the engine compartment, the hoses from the fuel filter conncts to the throttle assembly . You may have to remove the air filter housing to see it. It is a round canister hoses held on with fuel line clamps. hope this helps

bad fuel pump or filter, bd spark plugs, bad coils. check the fuel pressure, check to see if th plugs are black r a brownish color if ther ar black then replace them. get a vol tester and test your coils.

Car starts, runs rough it will eventually die after about 10 to 15 seconds, or if i try to give it gas. smells like gas. replaced fuel pump/filter

why did you replace the filter and pump?
did something get in the fuel?

check the injectors and spark plugs

in my car someone put flour in the fuel tank and the fuel pump, pumped it into the injectors where it cloged them up

so i had to replace injectors pump filter now it is good

Rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas

it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

94 nissan runs but dies out while driving, drives rough

the fuel filter is on the driver side next to the upper shock area. its a round metal cylinder with to hoses connected on the top an buttom. u first need to relieve the fuel pressure by starting ur car an then pull out the fuel pump fuse under the drivers dash panel, then let it die. after u do that crank the car a couple of times, and ur ready to go.
